    The Roosevelts doesn’t whitewash its subjects or make excuses for their missteps. It does admire them greatly, for their courage and vision.

    Painful as that journey may be, the show and these actors hit all the notes that make us want to come along.

    Much of the film is built on interviews with firefighters, and the conversations feel like conversation between professionals, not like a lecture to a group of outsiders.

    All three families seem fairly serious, not just like people who want to be on television. So the details of their new lives seem instructive, even if the lesson is “better them than us.”

    It’s all very evocative, creating a perfect mood for the complete “Basement Tapes” sessions that, surprise surprise, have just been released.

    With Minnie Driver and Morena Baccarin as two of Jacob’s wives, and Debra Winger as Dinah’s blunt-speaking grandmother, the story is engaging both as untold Biblical fable and modern-day television.

    [A] delightful animated hour.

    It's an entertaining TV show that easily could translate to a terrific comic book.

    The more it progresses, the more surprises it unwraps, and the more promise it presents.

    The truth is that at this point, the complex subplots and nuances of all the backstories make it more satisfying for longtime fans than for recent drop-ins.

    ABC's dense, unblinking and occasionally surreal tale of plane-crash survivors on a strange tropical island moves into its fourth season Thursday with its compass still in good working order.

    There's lots of humor in "Big Love" this season, but it is all based in the characters and a new spin on familiar situations.

    • 75 David Hinckley
    "The Boondocks," with all its knowingly controversial observations and language, is a sort of animated equivalent of "All in the Family." It'll make you think, and maybe even wince - but at the same time, it makes you smile.

    These attorneys quickly become characters, not just caricatures, and make "Just Legal" very easy to enjoy.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 75 David Hinckley
    A program that gets stronger as we get to know its characters better, and the quality of the cast helps tremendously.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 David Hinckley
    After one hour, we not only care about the patients - but care quite a bit about the doctors.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 David Hinckley
    A potentially compelling sister series for "Lost."
    • 53 Metascore
    • 75 David Hinckley
    Its supporting players steal the spotlight from the central character.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 David Hinckley
    The format is unusual, and the ending of the premiere nicely surprising - but the element that pushes this show into the potential hit category is Neil Patrick Harris.

    • 75 David Hinckley
    A playful pastiche of clashing styles.
    • 73 Metascore

    "Masters of Horror," like any anthology, can be judged only after many installments, but it's off to a tantalizingly creepy start.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 75 David Hinckley

    • 55 Metascore
    • 75 David Hinckley
    Like watching "The Carol Burnett Show: The Next Generation."
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 David Hinckley
    It fields one of the most enjoyable sitcom ensemble casts in some time.

    The series... is pure formula, but it's a formula that works.
